“The Paradox of our Times”
 Is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints We spend more, but we have less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families More conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees, but less sense More knowledge, but less judgement More experts, but more problems More medicines, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often We have learn how to make a living, but not a life. We have added years to life, but not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We have conquered outer space, but not inner space. We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted our soul. We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice. We’ve higher incomes, but lower morals. We’ve become long on quantity but short on quality.
These are the times of tall men, and short character; Steep profits, and shallow relationships. These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare, More leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorces; Of fancier houses, but broken homes. It is a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the stockroom.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you,
And a time when you can choose,
Either to make a difference …. or just hit, delete.”

Oh God, this is like the perfect poem to summarize all of today’s stupidity! It’s just so perfect I need a couple of minutes. This needs to be reblogged for infinity. Perfect!!

I don’t normally post something on this blog this is not mine (as it’s a writing/art blog for a reason), but this needs to be made an exception. You guys need to read this and tell me it doesn’t make you think.

“The Paradox of our Times”


Is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints
We spend more, but we have less.

We have bigger houses, but smaller families
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense
More knowledge, but less judgement
More experts, but more problems
More medicines, but less wellness.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often
We have learn how to make a living, but not a life.
We have added years to life, but not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back
But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We have conquered outer space, but not inner space.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted our soul.
We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We’ve higher incomes, but lower morals.
We’ve become long on quantity but short on quality.

These are the times of tall men, and short character;
Steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare,
More leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are the days of two incomes, but more divorces;
Of fancier houses, but broken homes.
It is a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the stockroom.

A time when technology can bring this letter to you,

Life does not hold you in bondage

It does not clasp chains on you upon your birth

Per the contrary, it is meant to be explored

To take you where you are suppose to be

Do no fight it

Embrace it,

Embrace it with a smile.

—-I gotta blame the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara for this. I just watched that movie the first time yesterday and fell in love!
